Swift & Company
Has Not "Jest Growed"
Swift & Company, in fifty years of well ordered growth,
has become one of the great national services because
it has learned to do something for the American people
which they needed to have done for them, in the way
in which they preferred to have it done.
It has met each successive demand, in the changing
conditions of national life, by getting good meat to
increasing millions effectively, efficiently, economically,
and expeditiously.
The Swift & Company packing plants, refrigerator
cars, car routes, branch houses, organization, and person
nel of today are the practical solutions, born of practical
experience, to the food problems of a half a century.
Because of all of these elements working in cor
relation and unison, Swift & Company is able to supply
more and better meat to more people than would have been
possible otherwise, at a net profit per pound of meat so low
(a fraction of a cent) that the consumer price is practically
Strip away any portion of this vast, smooth-running
human machine, and you make a large part of the meat
supply uncertain, lose the benefit of half a century of
fruitful experience, and scatter the intelligent energies of
men who have devoted a life work toward meeting the
needs of a nation in one vital field.

Lieut. Sheehan was an officer in

Organization Will Continue Work
of Relieving Distressed.
Peace will bring renewed work for
the Red Cross, according to a state-)
ment issued yesterday.
"Millions of American boys are still
under arms," says the Red Cross
Statement. "Thousands of them are
?ick and wounded. Owing to short
age in shipping, it may take a year
to bring our boys home from France.
But, whatever the time, our protect
ing arm must be about them and
their families over the whole period
which must elapse before the normal
life of peace can be resumed.
"The cessation of war will reveal
a picture of misery such as the world
has ne^er seen before, especially in J
the many countrien which can not I
help themselves. The American peo- !
pie will expect the Red Cross to con
tinue to act as tbair agent in repair-]
ing broken spirit* snd broken bodies. I
Peace terms and peace conditions will
determine how we may best minis
ter to the vast stricken areas which
have been harrowed by war. and for
this great act of mercy the heart and
spirit of the American people must
continue to be mobilized through the
American Red Cross.
"On behalf of the war council we
accordingly ask each member of our
splendid body of workers throughout
the land to bear in mind the solemn
obligation which rests upon each one
to 'carry on..' We can not abate one
instant in our efforts or in our spirits.
There will be abundance of work to
do, and specific advices will be given,
but even at the moment of peace let
no Red Cross worker fslter.
"Our spirits must now call us to
show that not the rc^r of cannon or I
the blood of our own alone directs ourl
activities, but that a great people
will continue to respond greatly and
freely to its obligations and oppor
tunity to serve.''
One thousand new members was the J
aim set for the District Guard at a j
meeting held Thursdsy night* at thel
Armory. 472 I> street northwest, at
the call of Brig. Gen. Richard D. I
Simms, the commanding officer.
More than 1.100 are already enrolled
for the various units. The suard has j
available an appropriation of 570,0001
and plenty of uniforms, arms and j
supplies. It is probable that a down
town rccrultinp office will be opened
within a few days.
Under the new District of Columbia
Guard law. men between the a?es of
17 and f?5 years of age can now enlist i
for limited service in the District only.
It is probable that regiments, ma
chine-gun companies, anti-air craft
companies, a hospital corps, a naval
battalion and a separate colored bat
talion will be organized.
All men in the Capital are urged]
by the officials in charge to join the|
